The next TRON film sequel might’ve hit the skids and got cancelled eventually, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get to see ‘The Grid’ once again and relive our animatronic adventure. Disney released a sneak preview on what could be a pumped up ‘Temple Run’ or ‘Subway Surfer’ version of 2010’s Tron: Legacy.
“Tron RUN/r” (pronounced we suppose as ‘Runner’) will task players with making it to the end of each of 30 levels in The Grid as fast as possible, and this new video trailer shows off some of the mechanics players will use. Sprinting, leaping, wall-running, grinding along rails, air dashes and sick-hot lightcycle spins all adds up to the visual appeal of the video. There’s also a bit of combat as the player battles an attacking Recognizer.
The greatest selling point of the game in spite of the simplicity and straightforwardness of its gameplay lies on the visually stunning graphics that it employs similar to what we have seen on Tron: Legacy. Truth be told, it’s a serious feast for the senses. It’s an art style that looked far better as compared with the under-appreciated Tron: Evolution game, and it looks even better now on current platforms.
The RUN/r’s soundtrack doesn’t disappoint as well, which carries with it names like the legendary Giorgio Moroder – known for his pioneering work of marrying synth disco and electronic music.
TRON RUN/r will be available on February 16, 2016 on via Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. We hope to see a mobile version soon. Check out this fresh trailer from Disney Games showing the gameplay in action and tell us what you think.
